Operating under the (well-founded) assumption that Chelsea’s primary focus in the summer transfer window will be on reinforcing and/or rejigging the defense, the Blues have been increasingly linked with a whole host of center backs from all around Europe. For some reason, most of them involve Bayern Munich in some way, shape, or form (probably because they’re also undertaking a similar endeavor).

Having missed on Dayot Upamecano, whose move to Bayern at the end of the season has already been confirmed, Chelsea may or may not be turning our attention to Bayern’s own Niklas Süle (among others, I’m sure), whose name “aroused” our interest (HELLO!) not just last month, but some years back as well.
